How to Control Panic Attacks

Do you want to know how to control panic attacks and stop them occurring? The answer is by taking positive action. In this way, you improve you resilience in dealing with the challenges of life.

Say No to Triggers

Becoming more assertive and saying no to things that have a negative effect on you may help you avoid panic attack triggers. Don’t be a doormat. If you know that a situation may be triggering for you, say no until you feel ready. Don’t let anyone else put you in a position you’re not comfortable with. Know your own mind and body.

Prevention Strategies

Preparing a positive prevention strategy will help you feel prepared. Make a list of the steps which might help you. Could you attend a meditation course or some assertiveness training for example?

Pace Yourself

Doing too much too soon can lead to panic attacks. Pace yourself and take breaks when you need them. Eat regularly, exercise and look after yourself. A stressed and strained body is more prone to panic responses. Short term boosts like sugar and caffeine can leave you weak and on edge, increasing the potential for panic attacks to happen.

Find Balance

Take responsibility for your own needs, making sure you have a work/ life balance. Balance your needs and the needs of others. Being overloaded only makes you more prone to having panic attacks.

Find the Root Cause

What are the root cause of your panic attacks? Could you have generalised anxiety disorder? Or post traumatic anxiety? Perhaps you are struggling with a fear or phobia? Working out the cause is key to controlling the panic attacks.

Perhaps there’s something important you want to change in your life. Or a situation that’s making you feel uncomfortable.

Seek Help

If you are struggling with anxiety or panic attacks don’t go it alone. Seek help from family and friends. Or, better yet, from a professional hypnotherapist or counsellor or can help you learn to control your panic attacks and lead a more relaxed life.
